HCHS season passes

Season ticket prices and game admission prices will remain unchanged for the 2009-10 school year, with one additional option available .

At the new stadium, there are 300 chair back seats in the middle section of the bleachers. Those seats will be offered as reserved seats for $50 per seat. If a family ,or group, purchases at least four seats, they will also receive a parking pass that will get them a reserved parking spot close to the stadium.

In addition, to the five home varsity games, reserved seat holders will also get free admission to all junior varsity and freshman home games that will be played at Ingles Stadium.

Current varsity football players have been responsible for selling those seats as a fund-raiser for the football team. Currently, anyone interested in purchasing those chair back seats can do so at the high school during regular business hours.

Ushers will be on hand at all varsity football games to insure that only reserved seat ticket holders will occupy those seats.
